Fort Worth resident Rory Sabbatini and Colonial champ David Toms were among seven golfers who earned exemptions today into the field at the 2011 U.S. Open. Both golfers received their spots based on being among the top 50 in this week’s world golf rankings.
Other exemptions extended today went to Anders Hansen, Peter Hanson, Ryo Ishikawa, Matteo Manassero and Aaron Baddeley. The U.S. Open will be June 16-19 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.
